La Choulette Ambrée is the classic amber version of a French bières de gardes. It has a wonderfully spicy aroma and is fullflavored, but effervescent and refreshing.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2003
Big short lived head & chestnut colour. Some apple-like aroma. Very malty flavour with just enough alcohol warmth. Caramelly sweetness develops as it warms, which I actually liked. Quite complex and worthy of rating #300.

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2006
Deep red pour with a clingy head. Thick belgian like taste. Somewhat swet with some fruit and tartness like grapefruit. Very clean finish, a bit of a strong alcohol taste.

(06.19.06) One pint 9.4 oz brown bottle from Kahn’s Fine Wines, Indiana. 8% ABV. Bottle labeled as best before 10/14/06. Poured clear amber with giant long-lasting white head. Soft carbonation. Caramel and sweet malt aromas. Medium bodied Belgium amber ale that starts dry with light malt sweetness and toasted malt/spice/caramel/ candy-like flavor. Finished dry with light hop bitterness. Well-balanced. Complex flavor character. No funky notes. This is a very enjoyable drinkable amber beer.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2006
bought in Lille: The best of biere de gardes that I’ve tasted in France. aroma is carmel. amber beer with good head and good lacing. flavor is carmel and spice without that unfortunate leathery note that other biere de gardes have had that just turns me off. its too stong and reminds me of an attic. alright texture. still i the world of beer this is not that special. Will stick to belgian ales probably from now on, even if I am in France.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2004
nice amber color with orange golden shine and good airy head. Fine beer with nice aroma’s of fennel and soft spices. Beer with good texture and round mouthfeeling. In the taste there are some hints of malts, honey, herbs and star-anise. It ends with a warm and full mouthfeeling.
